Apache Cassandra is an open source distributed database management system designed to handle large amounts of data across many commodity servers, providing high availability with no single point of failure.

Apache Cassandra Certification

Apache Cassandra is a second generation distributed database originally open-sourced by Facebook to handle large amounts of data across many commodity servers, providing high availability with no single point of failure. It offers strong support for clusters spanning over multiple datacenters with asynchronous master less replication. Thus, allowing low latency operations for all it clients. Instead of master-slave model, which is incorporated by major popular databases, Cassandra makes use of peer-to-peer model. It makes the writes and reads extremely scalable and allows nodes to function in case of partition tolerance. Collabera TACT’s ‘Apache Cassandra’ training is specifically designed by addressing these issues of relational database and how a NoSQL database system serves as a potent remedy to serve those issues.

During the training the participants will go through every aspect of Cassandra database starting from installation of Cassandra to communication with Cassandra, how to create a database, create a table and insert a model data. Furthermore, eminent concepts like creating an application, updating and deleting data, selecting hardware, adding nodes to a cluster, monitoring a cluster, repairing and removing nodes and re-defining a cluster will also be explored, in depth.

Why go for Apache Cassandra Training?

Major companies such as Accenture, Answers.Com, AOL, Apigee, Applifier, Avast, Avira, BlackBerry Dell, Docomo, Expedia, GE, Godaddy use Apache CassandraTM. Cassandra is undoubtedly in the forefront of the NoSQL origination, providing higher scalability and thus allowing companies to store petabytes of data.

Cassandra’s unique feature allows handling huge workloads across multiple datacenters, with not a single point of failure. This feature of Cassandra provides enterprises with greater database availability and performance. Cassandra is an open-source project, which allows you to use the source code and modify it as per your organizational requirements. According to various surveys posted by job portals, it is predicted that, the job prospective for Cassandra is growing at the rate of 200%. Google trends shows exponential growth of Jobs in Apache Cassandra –
